LAS VEGAS, NV (KXNT) - On Monday, Metro Police announced the arrest of a man they say is responsible for a so-called "thrill killing" of a local homeless man.

Back on the morning of July 13th, LVMPD Dispatch received a 911 call from a citizen who lreported a man near the intersection of Pennwood Avenue and South Decatur Boulevard. The caller stated the victim was laying on the sidewalk, suffering from a gunshot wound. The man was pronounced dead at the scene

With the help of tips from the community, homicide detectives identified 21-year-old Noah Green as their prime suspect. He was taken into cutody on Sunday.

In addition, Green is also suspected of committing another shooting two days later in the same general area as the homicide. In that case, a 66-year-old man was out walking his dog in a park when he was approached by Green, who shot him in the chest. That victim is currently in critical condition.

Police say in both cases, Green recorded cell phone video of himself approaching the victims and firing the gunshots.

Green was booked into the Clark County Detention Center for one count of Open Murder with the Use of a Deadly Weapon, and one count of Attempted Murder.
